Secondary school transcripts

A secondary school transcript is the official record of your secondary school academic achievement. The transcript includes:

  • The courses you have successfully completed.
  • Your final marks earned.
  • The credit value of each course.
  • Secondary school diploma status (if applicable).

How to submit a secondary school transcript:

  • Current Ontario secondary school students who apply online through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) will have their transcript sent from their high school to the university via OUAC.
  • All other applicants must have their secondary school transcript submitted directly to the university by the educational institution that issues it.
  • The university will accept a secondary school transcript in a signed, sealed envelope that you hand-deliver or mail to us if the issuing institution can’t submit it directly.

How to obtain an official transcript from an Ontario secondary school you attended:

If you left a publicly funded school within the past five years, you will likely be able to get your secondary school transcript (Ontario Student Transcript) from the last school you attended. However, some school boards maintain records in a central office, so you may be referred to the board to obtain your transcript.

If you left a publicly funded school more than five years ago, or if the school you attended is no longer in operation, you should contact the school board (not the school).

You can use the School Board Finder on the Ontario Ministry of Education’s website to find:

  • Public school and separate school addresses.
  • Addresses for public and separate school boards.

Information about school authorities is available on the Ministry of Education website.

Addresses for private schools are available from the directory of Private Elementary and Secondary Schools.

If a private secondary school you attended is no longer in operation, please contact:
